2. WHEREAS, it was discovered on June 12, 2023, due to the smell of sewage at Horace Greeley High School Campus (HGHS) that a sewer line is in need of immediate repair in order to prevent further deterioration, assure the general safety, health and welfare of the students, staff and visitors to HGHS, and to safeguard the School District’s property; and
WHEREAS, the Board is empowered to determine that the expense of these activities is an ordinary contingent expense within the meaning of §2023 of the New York State Education Law and §170.2(l) of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education and that the project constitutes an emergency within the meaning of §103 of the General Municipal Law to allow for the repair of the HGHS sewer line and related activities on an immediate basis without the necessity of competitive bidding;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Board of Education, as the only agency involved in the emergency project and, therefore, lead agency, hereby determines that the emergency excavation and repair of the HGHS sewer line, including related activities, will not have a significant environmental impact and declares this project a Type II Action pursuant to Section 617.5(c)(1) (maintenance or repair involving no substantial changes in the structure or facility) and/or (2) (replacement, rehabilitation or reconstruction of a structure or facility, in kind on the same site) and/or (10) (routing activities of educational institutions) of the State Environmental Quality Review Act regulations, and no further action is required; and
